Summer Read 2011 Movie Night : Invictus

The film tells the true story of how Nelson Mandela joined forces with the captain of South Africa's rugby team to help unite their country.

Believing he can bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela rallies South Africa's rugby team as they make their historic run to the 1995 Rugby World Cup Championship match.
